Why is it that big bills always come at the same time? Two days after I spent a small fortune on a holiday booking my car decides it wants to be a diva again and fail. The bloody electronic unit in the gearbox died a death while driving, the cheapest bill if it can be repaired comes to around £1000, the most likely bill will be around £2000-£2500 if it has to be replaced.
And that just after a few other things needed replacement around the house.
For interest, the main Audi dealership are quoting a replacement price plus nice courtesy vehicle that's nearly 40% cheaper than any of the independent garages...
There are many who say that morality has nothing to do with capitalism but I think we're at the point where a few heads need to be firmly smacked before the chase of this year's profit finally completely destroys tomorrow's financial future.
